ZZ Top is known for their beards, blues rock, and love for Houston. As we remember the great Dusty Hill, this 2007 special takes a look at the band's time on the road, the story behind their famous facial hair, their favorite song, and how their music has evolved over the years.ZZ Top is known for their beards, blues rock, and love for Houston.

HOUSTON, Texas -- UPDATE: Due to a "clerical error," Gilded Monkey Market's Thom Anderson tells CultureMap, information the estate sale company released to the press incorrectly insinuated that the Dusty Hill's family is behind this sale. Rather, says Anderson, "this is an estate sale of the contents of his prior home." Anderson now says that the contents are for sale by the new owners of Hill's home; this was not information initially provided.

Additionally, after further inquiry by CultureMap, an attorney for Hill's family advises that this sale is "not in any way affiliated with Hill's estate or his family."


Fans who are still mourning the passing of Dusty Hill, bassist for iconic Houston rock band ZZ Top, now have a chance to own a piece of his history.

An estate sale will be held from Friday, June 10 through Sunday, June 12 at The Guilded Monkey Market warehouse (7023 Rampart St.) in southwest Houston.

The video above is from a 2007 special that takes a look at the band's time on the road.

Select pieces come from Hill's prior home in the prestigious Carlton Woods neighborhood in The Woodlands.
